Thank you for visiting Krieger Schechter Day School’s home on the Web. We invite you to skim for facts or dive in for information about the vibrancy of our school, the values of our community and the breadth and depth of our programs.

Founded in 1980, we are a co-educational, independent Jewish day school for children in Kindergarten through Grade 8. Our 30+ year tradition of academic excellence in the context of Jewish values gives our students a competitive edge. Our graduates shine among the most outstanding students at Baltimore’s top high schools and the nation’s most selective colleges and universities.

Grounded in the Conservative movement of Judaism, KSDS is distinguished by an egalitarian approach to gender. Girls and boys participate as equals in all aspects of Schechter life. Girls here carry and read the Torah, lay T’fillin and lead services. The egalitarianism that is so much a part of our religious life plays out in our general studies classes as well. Girls and boys participate equally in every subject, from language arts and social studies to science and honors math.

We welcome you to navigate our virtual world and discover how much KSDS has to offer. Explore our dual-language curriculum, opportunities in athletics and the arts, and our commitment to serving the greater Baltimore community and repairing the world.
